I have a bunch of random stuff in my head so here it goes. Sit down, its going to be a bumpy ride.
I have lost 6 pounds in less than 2 weeks. I feel great! Somehow all the things I was struggling with are just gone right now. No severe sugar cravings, I'm sleeping better, my GI tract is functioning better, I just FEEL better.
I have been on a medication called Gabapentin (Nuerontin) for several years. It helps with nerve pain from bulged discs. It is also supposed to help with menopause symptoms. The other day, I ran out. I went 2 days without it, noticed I was not in any more pain then usual, filled my prescription and then as an experiment, decided to not take it. Its been about 6 days and I feel so much better. I think it was actually making everything worse! I was on it when I first lost weight 3 years ago. But I think because of my hormones, things have changed.
My plan is to stay off of it! Yea me!
When I read your comments, even if I don't have time to answer, I just feel so blessed. I do not use that word lightly. So many of you have been with me since day 1, some came on board later but you all ,mean so much to me. I truly know I have a place where I can always come no matter what's going on. It means so much to me, please know that.
There are many things I am looking forward to like, losing weight, inches and gaining health. I'm looking forward to my daughters wedding one year from today!
I really feel a shift and an appreciation for life, love, friendships, health and family that has been missing for a while. I think I was sliding back into that darker, isolated place where I used to live and I'm glad to be fighting my way back.
You're all a big reason for that. So Thank you.
This weekend my plans include the movies STAR TREK, going to a race (No NACHO'S) and planning so that I can be prepared and stay on track. It worked last weekend I should be able to manage it this weekend too. IT is NOT A LICENSE TO EAT LIKE A WOLF!
Have a great weekend everyone!!

OMG! I lost 2 pounds OVER THE WEEKEND! Since last Thursday, I lost 2 more pounds!
How the heck did THAT happen?
Well if you read my previous blog, it was because I PLANNED. I am stunned with the loss however. I thought I would be down another pound by next Thursday but I weighed in today for the 2 week spark solution deal and I was pretty shocked.
I am hoping to build on this momentum, stay at my 1300-1500 calorie range, step up my exercise a bit and see if I can lose the 30 pounds I gained back in the last 2 years and FINALLY get below my husbands weight, which was my original goal and as of today he weighs 214. I STILL have my sites set for ONEDERLAND and beyond.
I bragged on Facebook last week that I lost 2.6 pounds and it was the first time in a long time that I lost weight. Someone asked me how I did it.
Is it really that simple? Pretty much.

Its a free for all, license to eat and reward myself from all my hard work last week which landed me over 2 lbs down! Yes!
Its just another day, no reason to eat like a wild animal or go over my calories because its the weekend!
So what's my plan?
Tonight, we usually go to a little Mexican place for dinner where I get my customized chicken salad (basically, lettuce, salsa, chicken) and I will count out 15 chips, yes 15! And I will eat only that many.
We will either go to the movies or come home and watch movies so there won't be any more food to deal with. If I'm home, I might have a sugar free pudding. That's an option
Tomorrow is Saturday so we will eat breakfast and lunch at home (toast and peanut butter for me and for lunch, I'm thinking tuna sandwiches on light wheat bread).
Dinner will be tritip on the grill, fresh corn on the cob and vegetarian baked beans.
Sunday is mothers day and I have no idea what is planned but I'm going to follow my path, and do my best to eat reasonably.
I am not going to undo my HARD work this week, I am going to BUILD on it.
I am back to my Thursday weigh in and I plan to be down at least another pound by next week.
I am done with the upwards trend. DONE!
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and do your best. REALLY do your best, don't just half a$$ it!
Enjoy your weekend and be proud of yourself when it is over!
